While some people tend to be a bit heavy handed on the old decorations this time of year, we prefer – as always – to express our seasonal selves through food.
Halloween has a few staples that can’t be avoided (think toffee apples or a cheeky pumpkin spice latte), but we’ve trawled the internet to find the best recipes to whip up some ghoulishly good treats. Have a go and let us know how they turn out.
1. Graveyard Taco Dip
This epic dip is full of avocado-ey, garlic-y goodness, and just love the spooky layer of baked tortilla headstones. Find the full recipe here from Chickabug.
2. Frankenstein Rice Crispy Bars
Channel Frankenstein’s monster in these cute green bars, probably aimed at kids originally but who are we to judge? A bit of green colour and melted chocolate and you’re good to go. Find the full recipe here from Everyday Art.
3. Strawberry Ghosts
For the more romantically inclined among us, the valentines favourite chocolate covered strawb has had a seasonal update with these strawberry ghosts. They’re pretty self explanatory, but get the instructions from Taste of Home here if you’re having a long day!
Severed Fingers Hot Dogs!
We’re not going to lie, these look pretty gory. Definitely for the brave of heart. But they’re just so effective we couldn’t not include them. Grab the recipe here from Party Tipz.
5. Frozen Banana Ghost Pops
Yes, we know it’s another chocolate covered piece of fruit masquerading as a ghost but they’re just too cute. Plus, they’re frozen. Find the original post on Skinny Taste here.
